The Times view on George Clooney's defence of Meghan: Royal Restraint

"Oh, yes, I'll be the godfather of the royals, apparently", he said with a laugh, clarifying his sarcasm with a big, "No!"

Clooney told reporters that Meghan is "a woman who is seven months pregnant and she has been pursued and vilified and chased in the same way that Diana was and it's history repeating itself". "The impact it was having on her that we would then see and feel was very hard to understand", William said in the documentary. A formal inquest into the crash found aggressive paparazzi photographers were partly responsible for the incident.

He quipped: "I'm now a father of twins".

The late Princess Diana, who married Prince Charles in 1981, was the subject of constant criticism by media organizations. At her funeral, her brother, Charles Spencer, described her as "the most hunted person of the modern age".

Historian Kate Williams adds: "That's why it's Duchess' throughout the Royal Family - because she [Camilla] is a Duchess".

At the time of her death, several United Kingdom tabloids were reporting extensively on her rumoured new relationship with Dodi Fayed, the son of an Egyptian billionaire. He was one of three other passengers in the vehicle with Diana when she was killed.

The Duchess also spoke about Diana on Good Morning Britain last November, saying the late Princess of Wales would have been thrilled by her sons' wives.

Harry and his older brother William have had a hard relationship with the media since the death of their mother. While we don't know the gender or possible names, it's clear that Charles will have a special bond with his fourth grandchild.

The media's treatment of Markle has not been unlike what Diana experienced, as Clooney noted.

The letter in question, which Markle wrote to her father in 2018 after he continued giving interviews to the press and was first alluded to in an interview with alleged close friends of the Duchess in People, was made public over the weekend when Thomas Markle shared it with The Mail on Sunday.
